The best Chinese bakery in Vancouver. The bbq'd pork and pineapple bun are very good. Soft, flavourful, with a lovely, flaky sweet crust. Friendly people at the counter too.
A beautiful little spot tucked away at the edges of "respectable" Gastown, Cadeaux is mostly a working kitchen and a counter featuring the daily spread, but there are a few places to sit down, and if you can manage to snag one it's a great place to sit and have a leisurely coffee or tea and chat with a friend. The London Fog cake is hands down the favourite item here. See Menu.
If you're looking for top-notch baked goods (yes, including French macarons), look no further because French Made Baking has you covered. The macarons are amazing. Large assortment of flavours. Highly recommend to anyone.
Everything and anything delicious can be found here. Pastries, cakes, cookies - even gluten-free Bliss Balls. They make fine pastries, special cakes, delicate mini cheesecakes, lovely desserts and fresh cookies/muffins. The pastries are luscious with great-quality ingredients and you can tell, baked with loving attention. There are line-ups on both sides of the counter, but worth the wait.
